If all else fails, you could go buy a cheap WiFi access point, plug it into the ethernet cable which you have plugged into the receiver and you'll get 100% wireless strength all the time.
I went this route as there was almost no WiFi coverage in my living room, so I needed a solution which included getting the controller working reliably.
A spin-off benefit is that all my WiFi capable entertainment devices also get 100% now. In my case, I bought a cheap switch as well. This meant that I could ethernet connect anything that would benefit. I did this mostly for my TV, which doesn't speak the same dialect of DHCP as my Router...
And to cap it all, I use a pair of powerline adapters to get the ethernet into the living room, as I didn't want to drill a big hole through the wall (It was originally a double-skinned external wall, and it has power cables running through the cavity, so any boring risks hitting a mains cable (and getting exciting, very quickly).
This entire setup seemed a bit "Heath-Robinson" when I first envisioned it, but it works absolutely perfectly!
